Happy Mothering Sunday!

Our Mother of the Year, Alice, prepares to cut the Simnel Cake that had been blessed on the altar of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ottawa.


Here’s a better view of the cake.  I think Fr. Doug Hayman made it.


It’s always a happy day at our parish, Laetare Sunday, and we have a more formal tea than usual, with cups and saucers, and an even fancier spread than our usual bountiful breakfasts after Mass.  This year, we had two Simnel Cakes, the one in the foreground below is gluten free.

As usual, those who got the memo wore pink   rose in solidarity with our priest.
